May 29, 2020  -  User Showcase Song - Under the Black

A little tale of pirates and scallywags.

As kids, I'm sure most of us have read the old classic Treasure Island with Jim and Long John Silver. I happened across a Starz series called Black Sails. Without too much persuasion, I started watching the series. (4 seasons) Somewhere in the 3rd season I started to put the pieces together that Black Sails is the prequel, the back story to where the treasure came from how it got to the island and so many more aspects of the book. Yep.... I had to go back and read the book again after I saw the series. It helps to know some of the characters in the book by seeing them in the series. Highly recommend it if you like sea dogs and sword play. Black Sails is not a kids series by any means.

So... I hadn't been working on any music so I decided to write something....anything and why not write a song about pirates? I mean what could possibly go wrong?

Influences include: Led Zepplin, ZZ Top, Game of Thrones, Black Sails.

I threw out all the rules I normally abide by in this one. Short intro...gone.... under 3:30... yep not happening.... As things went along, I added some interesting things..... and yes... it fades at the end....keep your ear peeled....

So.... have a listen and see what you think.
